As another college year draws to a close, the stu- 
dents of Stout State College "strike a balance" of the 
investments and dividends which have accrued to them 
during the year. Have you completed your account- 
ing? Let's take a moment and examine your personal 
college record. 

If you are a freshman, your college investment is 
only nine months old. Yet you are amazed to find that 
it has already paid generous dividends. Consider, for 
example, the social gains you have made since your 
arrival on the campus. There was orientation week 
which made you feel very much a part of the college 
and town. Dormitory life introduced you to roommates 
and classmates whom you now count among your closest 
friends. As weeks melted into months, you perhaps join- 
ed some of the social and professional organizations on 
campus which increased your personal relationships. 
Participation in intramural or intercollegiate sports af- 
forded you opportunities for friendly competition. Nor 
have these opportunities for social development been 
restricted to the first year of college. You upperclass- 
men can also record personal gains of a social nature. 

Whether you are completing your freshman or 
senior, sophomore or junior year, you can also credit 
your account with moral, cultural, and spiritual divi- 
dends. Whether it be in the classroom, on the playing 
field, or in your rooms, you have had daily opportunities 
to put into practice those ethical principles which have 
been stressed for you by your religious organizations, by 
the church of your choice, and by speakers who visited 
the campus during Brotherhood Week. Speakers at 
convocations, musical programs, lyceums, and dramatic 
productions have contributed to your cultural growth. 

Your largest dividend which was received on your 
college investment has been intellectual in character. 

Qualified faculty members, a large percentage of 
whom have advanced degrees, staff each department and 
are available for special assistance whenever the need 
arises. Modern laboratories provide facilities which en- 
able you to learn the use of the newest and most efficient 
techniques and equipment. Special classes in both 
academic and vocational fields serve to prepare you for 
your chosen vocations. Field trips afford you a first 
hand view of the practical application of the principles 
you have learned in the classroom and laboratory. 

Your most satisfying returns might be classified 
under the category of personal achievement. There is a 

certain amount of self-satisfaction to be gained from 
being a loyal and active supporter of a particular or- 
ganization, from serving as an officer, and from seeing 
your name appear on the Dean's List. There is realiza- 
tion of personal progress when you begin your turn at 
student teaching. 

In checking the dividends which have come your 
way since your arrival at Stout, you have perhaps over- 
looked the fact that you have made your own personal 
contributions, though small in comparison, to your Alma 
Mater. You have but to pause and consider the fact 
that Stout can exist only so long as you who comprise 
its student body continue to make your presence felt. 
You then are Stout, and your being on the campus is 
vital to its very existence. Whenever a visitor leaves 
our campus, the impression he carries away of Stout 
is largely determined by his impression of you. When- 
ever you leave the campus, whether it be to attend a 
movie in Menomonie, a national convention in Chicago, 
or to visit your respective homes for the holidays, you 
are Stout in the eyes of those with whom you come in 
contact. Nor does your contribution end with graduation. 
You will influence members of another generation to 
follow in your footsteps so that they, in turn, may 
realize the fullest returns on the best investment a youth 
can make today — a college education.

A glimpse of the Stout State College skyline at dusk 

The Presidents Message 

As you scan the pages of this year's To'&er, you will discover 
that it has as its theme the interrelationship exisiting between each student 
and Stout State College, That bond springs into existence the moment a 
student enters Stout; it grows ever stronger as he progresses toward the 
time of graduation. 

One aspect of that interrelationship is, of course, the great respon- 
sibility of the college to its students. These students expect from their 
institution of higher learning such necessary elements as a modern cur- 
riculum, the opportunity for personalized guidance, and a program of 
worthwhile extracurricular activities. There must also be adequate facilities 
in which these needs can be met. 

But to this relationship between the student and his college the 
individual can also contribute much, first as a student and later as a 
graduate. In fact, the college derives its very reason for existence from 
its students and its vitality from their constant quest for knowledge and 
from their college spirit. Upon its alumni the college depends for continuing 
support and interest in the years after graduation, as well as for a source of 
new students who will seek and achieve as have the alumni before them. 

Yes, the pages of this yearbook depict in some measure the variety 
of ways in which Stout State College has served you. It is my sincere hope 
that your college can be of further assistance to you in the future and that 
you, in turn, will always give to Stout your steadfast allegiance. 

Sincerely yours, 

Merle M. Price, M.A.

Many college activities could not be 
properly executed if it weren't for the untir- 
ing efforts of the administrative body of the 
college. The curriculum set up by this body 
is designed particularly for specialized train- 
ing in home economics and industrial educa- 
tion, but it is also devised to give students a 
liberal education. In addition to the numerous 
minors which are available to students, a 
bachelor of science degree is obtainable in 
home economics education, vocational educa- 
tion, industrial education, industrial tech- 
nology, institution management and dietetics. 
The graduate program is so designed that a 
student can earn a master's degree with a 
major in industrial education, home eco- 
nomics, home economics education, or vo- 
cational education. The administration must 
be continuously aware of the fluctuating 
teaching requirements in various states so 
that the curriculum can be revised to meet 
these standards.

Dean, Division of Home Economics 

Qualified staff members in every depart- 
ment provide students with excellent in- 
struction in preparation for their vocational 
desires. Few people consistently realize that 
the administration has duties other than class 
instruction, but if the truth be known, the 
jobs of faculty members really never end. 
Aside from preparing the curriculum and 
aiding students prepare for graduation, staff 
members are called upon to assist in the plan- 
ning of student activities both on the Stou: 
campus and other campuses and to act as ad- 
visors for many campus organizations. During 
the course of the year, the administrative 
body is called upon to participate in numerous 
administrative committee meetings. 

The administration, either as a whole or 
as a group of individuals, is always available 
and willing to aid students with their prob- 
lems whether they be scholastic, financial, 
or personal.

One of the means of retaining contact with Stout after 
graduation is the Stout Alumni Association. Each graduate 
of Stout is automatically a paid-up member of the Alumni 
Association for one year. As an active member, he receives 
the alumni publication, the Newsletter, weekly issues 
of the school newspaper, The Stoutonia, and other 
important alumni news. To obtain these publications, all the 
graduate needs to do is to send a postcard listing his address 
to the Stout Alumni Association, Menomonie, Wisconsin. In 
this way graduates are able to keep in contact with former 
classmates and happenings on the college campus. 

Homecoming was one of the biggest activities for the 
Association this year. A registration area was set up for 
returning alumni, and many activities were planned to help 
them renew old friendships. One of the most successful 
of these activities was the alumni coffee hour held in the 
lounge of newly opened Tainter Hall. 

National officers are elected by all active members. 
The secretary's office under the supervision of Dr. E. Robert 
Rudiger handles necessary election arrangements. District 
representatives are elected by alumni in their respective areas. 
Stout alumni chapters are found in many Wisconsin cities 
as well as in localities outside the state. During the year 
each of these local chapters sponsors an active program. 
Information regarding local chapters can be obtained by the 
alumnus from Stout graduates in the area in which he establishes 
his residence.

One of the buildings on campus that every student is 
familiar with is the library. Its director, Miss Phyllis Bentley, 
and her staff of librarians are kept busy from the first day of 
registration until the last day of school. The first few days 
are devoted to checking out textbooks, but soon thereafter 
student's needs. Many of them make a habit of stopping 
material for term papers, reports, and daily assignments. 

The magazine section at the end of the main study 
room contains enough papers and magazines to satisfy every 
student's needs. Many students make a habit of stopping 
here at least once a day to catch up on the latest news. In 
the spacious reading room students have access to many books 
placed these purely for enjoyment. They can find old issues 
of magazines and newspapers necessary for the writing of 
research papers in the stacks on both first and second floors. 

Also in the stacks are many of the best books available 
in the fields of home economics and industrial arts. In the 
basement of the library are several rooms used for meetings 
of campus organizations. The audio-visual room also located 
in the basement is frequently used in presenting visual aids 
to college classes.

The formal and beautiful ceremony during which Betty 
Havlik was crowned queen marked the beginning of Stout's 
1956 Homecoming weekend. After the coronation students 
and alumni gathered in the Circle and marched with torches 
to the fairgrounds. Following a pep rally and the lighting of 
the bonfire, everyone returned to the gym for a mixer which 
completed Friday's festivities. 

Breakfasts, teas, and dinners for returning alumni spon- 
sored by various organizations began Saturday's activities. This 
year's parade was one of the best in many years as the competi- 
tion for top honors was extremely keen. The Sigma Sigma 
Sigma sorority float was judged most beautiful and the Phi 
Sigma Epsilon fraternity float most in keeping with the theme. 
The crowd followed trie marching units to Nelson field where 
Superior's Yellow Jackets and Stout's Blue Devils were doing 
last minute warm up drills in preparation for the gridiron battle. 

Although loss of the football game was regrettable, the 
other activities served to temper the disappointment. The bon- 
fire, coronation, parade, and alumni activities all contributed to 
make the 1956 Homecoming a jubilant and memorable event. 
The dance on Saturday evening provided a fitting climax for an 
eventful weekend for both students and alumni.

Looking for someone? Chances are that you'll find him 
in the Union. Stout students always seem to find a few 
minutes to visit the Union to meet their friends or to have a 
snack. The Union is a student project which was under the 
direction of Jim Jonen. 

A small gymnasium on the first floor is used for intramural 
sports, athletic practice, and social functions. A swimming 
pool is used for swimming classes in physical education and 
is open to those who wish to take a refreshing dip on 
weekends. Two bowling alleys provide students with a means 
of enjoyment. The lounge on second floor is usually filled 
to capacity with students watching television, playing' cards, 
or just chatting. Adjacent to the lounge is a recreation room 
where students may enjoy pool or ping pong. 

Plans for a new student Union are completed; construc- 
tion is scheduled to begin this summer. Site of the new 
Union will be between the library and the present Union. 
A breezeway will link the two buildings. The swimming 
pool in the present building will remain intact, and the 
gymnasium and lounge will be converted into club rooms.

'56 PROM 

As couples entered the high school gymnasium 
last May for the 1956 Junior prom, they found them- 
selves in a world of underwater beauty" The theme, 
"Sea Mist," was carried out with large murals of star- 
fish and abstract aquatic scenes on the walls. Bob 
Leighton and his orchestra provided the music and 
featured the prom theme song, "Ebb Tide." Tropical 
punch served during the evening by various members of 
the junior class helped to add to the aquatic atmosphere. 

Instead of the usual grand march, a different and 
unusual type of coronation ceremony was presented by 
the court of honor which included the junior class 
officers and their guests: vice-president, Andree Jost; 
secretary, Delia Medin; and treasurer, Jerry Schoenikc. 
Bonnie Koch was crowned 1956 prom queen by king 
Joe Koch, president of the junior class. Each college 
class was then honored in turn. 

Adding much to the enjoyment of the dance itself 
were the festive parties and dinners held before and 
after the dance.

Chain reaction — faculty members primp before the 
graduation exercises 


Commencement, a day long anticipated, became a reality 
for the class of '57 on May 25. Graduation with its pomp 
and majesty brought to a close four years of studying, fun, and 
friendship which began when class members unpacked their 
trunks for the first time in the dormitories. 

As each senior received his diploma, he looked back 
with nostalgia upon his days at Stout. His freshman class will 
be remembered as having been one of the largest ever enrolled 
in Stout. The sophomore year was filled with activities like 
decorating for Homecoming and the Christmas dance and join- 
ing various campus organisations. The class's biggest junior 
project was its prom, "Sea Mist." Yet before the seniors realized 
it, commencement week had arrived with its whirl of teas, 
breakfasts, farewell dinners, and dances. 

Many new additions to the college have taken place 
during these four years. "M" day of their freshman year found 
students carrying books to the new library. The class watched 
with pride as the new women's dormitory progressed and was 
opened for residence last fall. It was also privileged to extend 
a class welcome to the one thousandth student, as the enroll- 
ment reached its highest peak in Stout's history. 

The seniors, as they reminisce about their college days, 
realise that their activities and the additions to campus facilities 
have only been incidental to their academic growth and the 
attainment of a degree. Each senior enters his chosen career 
with a feeling of confidence knowing he has received adequate 
training. Whether he goes directly into his vocation or pursues 
further education, he will continually add to the foundation he 
has established for himself in his four vears at Stout. 

A diploma, symbol of four years of work, leads the way to 
the future

As the seniors reluctantly watched the school year draw 
to a close, they assumed leadership in many campus organiza- 
tionsand coordinated many college activities. "Welcome Fresh- 
men" was the special greeting extended to freshman students 
last fall when the class opened the school year with an all-school 
picnic. A similar warm greeting was extended to alumni during 
Homecoming weekend when the group decorated Harvey 
Hall and set up an alumni registration booth. At the Christmas 
dance tokens of appreciation were presented to several out- 
standing members of each college class. 

Senior students were guests of honor nearly all the last 
week of school. Memories of their last social activities at Stout — 
the honors convocation, the spring picnic, and the commence- 
ment ball — will remain with each senior. The door to four 
wonderful years at Stout is closed, but the door to the future has 
just opened.

With the outstanding leadership provided by its 
officers, the junior class completed a very successful 
year and has many fond memories of a job well done. 

For the juniors, the most memorable event of 
the Homecoming festivities was the coronation of the 
junior class candidate Betty Havlik as 1 956 Home- 
coming queen. When campaigning for Betty, the 
class used its ingenuity and came up with a slogan, 
"Bunny Votes Betty,"' around which they centered 
their campaign. Making pasters, stuffing mailboxes, 
stamping napkins, serenading, and providing convo- 
cation favors were among the many activities in- 
cluded in the campaign. Using the presidential con- 
vention as a basis, the juniors organized a skit for 
serenading and for introducing Betty at convocation. 
A float for the Homecoming parade built under the 
co-chairman ship of Judy Berget and Mary Ann 
Spangler was entered in the category' of "most in 
keeping with the theme." Going along with the 
slogan, "Make Superior Feel Inferior, ' the float 
was the deathbed of a large Yellow Jacket which 
had been captured by the spear of a Blue Devil. 

Assisting in the preparations for the Homecoming 
dance was still another part of the juniors' contri- 
bution to Homecoming. Goal posts decorated the 
entrance into the Menomonie High School gym 
where the dance was held. Other decorations included 
a blue spiderweb ceiling, a throne made in the shape 
of a football, and a punch stand shaped as a crown. 

Christmas time provided more activities for the 
juniors. The class had charge of the punch table and 
serving of the punch at the annual all-school Christmas 
dance. At this dance the senior class presented two 
deserving members of each class with awards for 
outstanding participation in class activities. Mary Ann 
Spangler and John Blythe were the junior recipients 
of these awards. 

The new semester found the juniors beginning 
their plans for the annual spring prom. A theme 
contest was organized, and suggestions for a theme 
were submitted by the student body. The winner 
of the contest received two free tickets to the prom. 
After the theme had been selected, the class com 
mittees made definite plans and gathered the materials 
needed to carry them out. The class selected May 
4 as the date for the long awaited occasion; George 
Leighton and his orchestra provided the music for 
one of the most colorful social events of the year. 
Because the prom is such an important occasion for 
the entire student body, it required much time and 
planning by the junior class. 

Now as the year closes, class members look 
back upon a year filled with many accomplishments. 
When the junior class received the torch of know- 
ledge from the senior class on Awards day, new 
challenges were laid in the hands of the class. The 
juniors look with anticipation toward next year, 
the closing chapter in their lives as students at Stout 
State College.

Festive holiday spirit gleams from every comer at the Panhcllcnic Christmas formal 


Registration day found last year's freshmen back 
as sophomores, one year older and wiser. Some of the 
class members had dropped out, but in their places 
were transfer students who were welcomed into 
the class. 

The class's chance to work as a group came in 
October. As in the past, the sophomores were given 
the job of decorating Menomonie and Nelson Field 
for Homecoming. Committees were organized, 
chairmen were appointed, and work was begun. 
Homecoming banners with bold black letters spell- 
ing oUi.- "Welcome Alumni" were hung over each 
highway leading into town. Large Blue Devils were 
constructed and placed on the lamp posts on Main 
and Broadway streets; each Blue Devil represented 
a member of the Stout football team. White foot 
steps and slogans printed on the town's sidewalks all 
pointed to Stout's campus and Homecoming activities. 
Murals were painted on windows of stores and added 
to the festivity of the occasion. A large Blue Devil 
was seen hovering over a little Superior Yellow Jacket 
in the tower of Bowman Hall. Early on Saturday 
morning an active group of sophomores treked out to 
Nelson Field and put a welcome sign on the roof 
of the warm-up house. The goal posts and bleachen 
were also decorated in Superior's colors, black and 
yellow, and Stout's colors, blue and white. 

The class also found time to construct and 
decorate a float for the homecoming parade. Entitled 
"We Mean Bzz-ness," the float depicted a tree full 
of Stout's busy bees pushing several Superior Yellow 
Jackets back into their hive. 

In December the sophomores were given the task 
of decorating the high school gym for the all-school 
Christmas dance. A ceiling of light blue paper was 
hung, and in the very center a large silver bell was 
placed. The theme of the decorations was "Sleigh 
Ride." A real sleigh and a life sized paper horse w 7 ere 
placed at one end of the gym; murals of winter 
scenes and the words to "Sleigh Ride" decorated the 
walls. Christmas trees were placed around the sleigh 
and near the murals to add to the Christmas atmos- 
phere. Evergreen and red bows decorated the doors; 
in the entrance hung a sign wishing everyone a 
Merry Christmas. 

The sophomores took an active part in the Winter 
carnival by entering the snow carving contest as a 
group and by individually participating in various 
contests. Early in the spring the sophomores spon- 
sored a mixer which was enjoyed by all who at- 
tended. In May, as their last activity of the year, they 
furnished the food for the all -school picnic. 

As school closes, the sophomores find themselves 
in the middle of their four years of college. They 
are glad that the first two have finally passed, but 
they look forward to the two happy years yet 
to come.

After filling out application blanks and anxiously 
waiting for word that they had been accepted, an 
eager and expectant freshman class arrived at Stout 
State College to begin a new type of life. After what 
seemed to be endless hours of waiting in line and 
filling out forms for registration, the students began 
taking part in the Freshman week activities. Among 
the orientation activities intended to acquaint the new- 
students with Stout were a sports spree, a tour of 
Menomonie, a tour of the home economics and in- 
dustrial education buildings, and an all-school picnic. 
After the hustle and bustle of that first tiring week, 
the freshmen were acquainted with the more regular 
routine of everyday college life. 

Homecoming week found the freshmen busy 
with preparations for their first big college event. 
Freshmen were once again in charge of building the 
bonfire. Old tires, wood, paper, and anything else 
which would burn was collected from the town and 
surrounding areas and was thrown on the pile in hopes 
that the fire would be the biggest and best that Stout 
ever had. Some of the girls helped out by baking 
cookies, making hot chocolate, and taking the food 
out to the fairgrounds to the freshmen. The bonfire 
may not have been the largest in Stout's history, 
but it certainly provided as bright a blaze as any 
in the past. In keeping with the Homecoming 
theme, "Make Superior Feel Inferior," the freshmen 
constructed and entered a float in the Homecoming 
parade consisting of two skunks made of chicken 
wire with the slogan, "Spraying for Stout, We 
Scent a Victory." 

During the Christmas season members of the 
freshman class with artistic talent and interest helped 
to make the all-school Christmas party a success by 
making attractive posters advertising the dance. The 
class also held several mixers and parties throughout 
the year sponsored by the girls living in the freshman 
dorms. The mixers gave class members a chance to 
have a good time and to become better acquainted. 

March 8 marked the date of the freshman formal, 
"Medley to Romance." The music of Johnny Roberta 
and his orchestra and the unusual decorations helped 
to make the event one that will be long remembered 
by freshmen and other students. 

The first year of life at Stout State College is now 
only a memory to freshman students, but it is a 
memory which will be long cherished. Rem- 
iniscences of their first weeks at Stout and their 
accomplishments throughout the year will serve as 
the basis of activities to come. As they look ahead, 
the freshmen realize that three wonderful years at 
Stout are yet to come.

The ever-increasing demand for graduates with advanc- 
ed preparation by industry, colleges, and secondary schools 
justifies the presence of a graduate program at Stout. The pro- 
gram is designed to meet the needs of the master teachers and 
professional workers in the fields of home economics and 
industrial education. Among those served are many who 
continue their residence at Stout after graduation and othen, 
who have returned from teaching to get the added professional 
and technical work available to them. 

A split program permits those who can complete the 
undergraduate requirements within the semester with less 
than a full time load to enroll as graduate students. This 
has proved advantageous to many — 34 split program 
graduate students have participated this year out of the total 
graduate enrollment of 65. 

The professional growth of the graduate student is 
enriched by participation in active graduate student clubs 
and professional organizations. The graduate student also 
has many opportunities for social activity. 

Teachers with advanced education are eagerly sought 
and compensated accordingly. The graduate program offers 
capable students the opportunity to acquire the competencies 
leading to professional advancement.

Stout offers two major areas of college preparation 
for men : industrial education and industrial technology. 
The first area is designed to prepare students for 
teaching and supervisory positions in all phases of 
education; the second is planned for those who desire 
to enter industry. Curriculums in these areas are 
quite similar, the main difference being that fewer 
education courses are required of those majoring in 
industrial technology. There are six major fields in 
each area: drafting, electricity, auto mechanics, metal 
and woodworking, printing, and general shop. These 
areas are constantly expanding and offer diversified 
training to students. 

The freshmen and sophomore programs are 
concerned with general preparation; the junior and 
senior years are devoted to specific preparation in the 
student's vocational area. Shop instructors, men who 
are qualified teachers as well as skilled craftsmen, 
employ the latest techniques, materials, and equipment. 
Under their leadership, students gain actual work 
experience along with classroom instruction.

The offerings in the Division of Home Economics are planned 
to meet the student's needs in family and community living and to 
offer a worthwhile training in the many professional fields open in 
home economics. Graduates are prepared to fill positions in teaching 
fields, hospital dietetics, institution management, commercial demon- 
strating, agricultural extension service, and a wide range of home 
economics positions in business. Curricula in the division meet the 
requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Science with a major in 
Home Economics Education, Home Economics, or Vocational 
Education, They also permit the meeting of requirements for teachers' 
licenses and certification by the American Dietetics Association for 
dieticians. Students may specialize in education, dietetics, or institution 

Forty semesters of home economics courses are required for 
graduation. In addition, one twenty semester hour minor or two 
fifteen semester hour minors must be selected from the following: 
physical science, social science, English, English-speech, or related art. 
A total of one hundred and twenty-four semester hours is required 
for graduation. 

The freshman curriculum is concerned with providing a general 
background in home economics and academic subjects. In the sopho- 
more, junior, and senior years, students take specialized courses to 
complete requirements for their vocational fields. Education majors 
include additional courses in teaching methods and psychology; 
dietetics and institution management majors include added courses in 
foods and science.

While primary emphasis at Stout is on specialized 
training in the fields of home economics and industrial 
arts, the curriculum is so arranged as to afford each 
student a solid educational background in the academic 
fields as well. 

Stout maintains departments in English, speech, 
mathematics, science, music, the social sciences, 
education, and psychology. There are offered at one 
time or another eleven courses in English and 
journalism, ten in speech, six in mathematics, eleven 
in physics and chemistry, eleven in music, twelve in 
the social sciences, fifteen in physical education and 
coaching, and twenty-eight in education and psychology. 

From this wide assortment of academic courses 
Stout students who plan to major in industrial or 
vocational education, industrial technology, dietetics, 
institution management, home economics, or home 
economics education can select one twenty hour minor 
or two fifteen hour minors. 

Also significant is the fact that Stout offers 
a number of one and two year courses which prepare 
students for entering such diversified professional areas 
of training as commerce, law, medicine, pharmacy, 
dentistry, nursing, engineering, journalism, and personnel

Three Blue Devils close in for the kill 

*Bas" prays for more horsepower 



An eager and enthusiastic student body was well 
represented in the stands when Stout opened the 1956 
football campaign with its new coach, Joe Gerlach. The 
team gave an early indication of its strength fn a non- 
conference game against the Warriors of Winona State 
Teachers College by scoring early in the game on a 34 
yard run by gob Tem ple. This lead was short lived, how 
ever, as Winona capitalized on Stout penalties and scored 
four touchdowns, putting them in front by a score of 26-6. 
Late in the fourth quarter Bill Romose r electrified the 
crowd with a 95 yard kickott return which resulted in a 
touchdown. The Warriors' four scores proved too much 
for the Blue Devils to overcome, and the game ended in a 
26-13 defeat. 

The second game of the season proved to be one 
of the team's best showings. Eau Claire, the team that 
eventually became conference champion, barely edged out 
the Blue Devils, 18-12. Stout scored within minutes after 
the game started and held the powerful Bluegolds score- 
less during the first half. In the second half, three quick 
touchdowns gave Eau Claire the victory. Stout's two scores 
were made on passes to Basil Holde r, one thrown b y Joe 
O'Leary and the other by" Dick Cheke. 

The Blue Devils' next contest, against River Falls, 
ended in another loss — this one by a score of 41-12. 
Stout's first touchdown came early in the game on a 70 
yard pass from Cheke to Romoser. The Blue Devils failed 
to score again until the final minutes of play when they 
moved downfield on a 50 yard pass play from Dick Chek e 
to Elrov Wicklund for the touchdown.

The Stout team traveled to LaCrosse for its fourth 
game and returned home with a severe 44-0 bearing. 
This was undoubtedly Stout's poorest showing of the 
year as LaCrosse scored in every period, held a 26-0 
halftime lead, and easily captured its first victory. 

The Blue Devils went to Whitewater for their next 
contest, but they failed to spoil the Quakers* home- 
coming and returned with their fifth straight loss, 34-7. 
Stout's superior conditioning showed in the game, but 
since Stout could score only one touchdown on a short 
pass from O'Leary to Holder, another Stout loss was 
written onto the records. 

The last conference game of the season found the 
Blue Devils entertaining Superior's Yellow Jackets be- 
fore a near-capacity Homecoming crowd at Nelson 
Field. Stout had many breaks in the game, but failed 
to capitalize on them. Superior, however, appeared to 
be sparked by their penalties and went on to a 24-6 win. 
Stout's only touchdown came in the second half on a 
quarterback sneak by O'Leary. 

The taste of victory came to Stout in its final home 
game with a 13-12 win over Northland. This was 
strictly a team victory as the whole team charged hard 
on offense and tightened up on defense. The Blue 
Devils scored early in the second quarter on a quarter- 
back sneak bv Dick Klaers.

Vern Christensen kicked the extra point which 
later proved to be Stout's margin of victory. The 
game was climaxed by a 75 yard pass, O'Leary to 
Mitchell, for a touchdown after the Blue Devils 
seemed to be bogged down and the game lost. 

The following week the Blue Devils traveled to 
Dubuque, Iowa, to play Lor as College. Unable to 
cope with the Dukawk's passing, the team went 
down to a 45-14 defeat. Stout's two touchdowns 
were scored on a run by Wicklund and a pass from 
O'Leary to Stauffacher. Christensen kicked both 
extra points.

The team ended its disastrous season with 
only one victory in eight attempts. In con- 
ference play, Stout tied Milwaukee for last 
place with a record of no wins and five 
losses. The Blue Devils, however, did not 
have as poor a team as their record seems to 
indicate. Many of their opponents* touchdowns 
were scored on long plays after Stout appeared 
to have stopped them. The team showed its 
ability to move the ball by doing so against 
the strongest of its foes. Stout's biggest 
offensive weapon was the pass; seven of the 
team's twelve touchdowns were scored by air 
and two others were set up by passes. The 
team's leading scorer was .Wicklund witf i 18 
points; he was followed by Romoser and 
Holder_iwth 12 points jsacL—JZHT 

Two Blue Devils f Bill Romoser a nd Dick 
Tepp, were honored By~t>eing electe^To~TrTe'~ 
northern all-conference team. The two were 
further honored by their teammates when 
Romoser was voted honorary captain of the 
team and Tepp was named the most valuable 
player and captain-elect of the 1957 team. 

Twenty -nine players were awarded letters, 
and four players received numerals. Only 
six of the letter winners were seniors: Vern 
Christensen, Maury Ellis, Basil Holder, Lyle 
Martens, Bill Romoser, and Ed Zillman. 
The experience gained by the rest of the 
players should pay dividends on the gridiron 
in 1957.

Moessner fakes to put distance between his man and himself 


possession as Sorenson passes off 



At 3:00 A.M. on Tuesday, March 5, a bus 
carrying the Stout basketball team rolled to a stop in 
the Stout circle. The team had arrived home after 
defeating Superior in its final game of the 1956-57 
season. This win gave the Blue Devils an overall 
record of 12 wins and 8 losses, representing a two 
hundred percent improvement over last year's 4 and 16 
showing. One reason for this improvement undoubtedly 
was the experience gained by players during last year's 
games. Another was the addition to the squad of 
freshman guard Keith Moessner who led the team in 
scoring. A third important reason was the increased 
support fans gave the team at all games. 

The Blue Devils, picked by many to retain their 
standing at the bottom of the conference, served early 
notice to the rest of the league that they weren't to be 
the conference "patsies" by upsetting non-conference foes 
at the beginning of the season. In pre-conference play 
Stout won five games while losing only one. In league 
play, however, the team started very slowly, losing five 
consecutive games before hitting their stride and winning 
five of the last seven contests to post a 5 won-7 lost 
conference record.

Time out for 3 rest and a change of strategy 

This record puts Stout in a four-way tie with La Crosse, 
River Falls, and Oshkosh for sixth place. Sixth place may 
not sound too impressive, but inasmuch as all the teams 
in the conference were very evenly matched, the difference 
between a win or a loss often was simply the breaks of the 
game. The Blue Devils were a "second half" team this 
year. In many of the games the team was behind at the 
half, sometimes by over i o points. Notable examples were 
the games against Winona, Superior, and Stevens Point. 
Blistering second half rallies brought victory in all of these 

The two biggest problems the team had to combat all 
year were their inability to make free throws and their 
lack of height. Their poor free throw shooting cost the 
team at least one game and probably more. The deficiency 
in height was met in the only way possible — by out- 
fighting the opposition and by taking positions under the 
boards for rebounds. Of the tactics employed by Coach 
Gerlach, the stalling game was most apparent and highly 
successful. If, near the end of a close game, Stout would 
manage a few points lead, the stalling would start. The 
opposition's becoming frantic often sent several players 
after the man with the ball, thereby leaving Blue Devil 
players open under the basket. Easy layups would follow 
and Stout would win easily. 

Two Blue Devil players were honored by their 
teammates: Jann Peterson, junior guard, was selected as 
the most valuable player, and junior forward, Jim Bolm, 
was voted honorary captain of the team.

Although the 1956 Stout baseball team was handi- 
capped by a shortage of pitchers, it finished the season 
with a respectable j-j record. The lack of mound 
strength showed up early in the season as the Blue 
Devils lost four close games which could possibly have 
been won with relief pitching. However, as the season 
advanced, the few hurlers on the team proved their 
worth by winning five of the last six games. 

Probably the best games the team played were its 
second games with Winona and Eau Claire. Although 
Ron Nelson walked eleven Winona players, he bore 
down in the clutches to win 5-3. He was aided by a 
team that committed only one error and by relief pitcher 
Bob Peterson. In the second Eau Claire game, the 
Blue Devils had excellent pitching, as Jerry Baumann 
outlasted three Blue Gold hurlers and fourteen innings 
to post a 7-4 victory. 

The team as a whole batted .262 with seven players 
hitting above .300. Players batting .300 or over were 
Bill Erpenbach, Don Feyereisen, John Blythe, Francis 
Pauls, Harry Miller, Tom Pagel, and Captain Fred 

The Blue Devils, with a Bi-State Conference record 
of 6 '6, ended the season in fourth place which ranked 
them above all other Wisconsin teams.

Ed Stori and Leroy Zwick wait to tee off 

The 1956 spring sport season produced the first 
varsity golf team since 1953, the 1954 and 1955 seasons 
being confined to intramural competition. Initial practices 
of the 1956 campaign were held in the college gymnasium 
with the aid of mock golf balls. This practice was continued 
until warm weather permitted outdoor practice. 

Late in the practice season it was decided to dispense 
with intramural activities and form a team for intercollegiate 
competition. The varsity club was composed of Leroy 
Zwick, Ed Stori, Bob Eggleston, Don Piontowski, Don 
Anderson, and Tom Grosskopf, and was led by player- 
coach Ralph Hetzel. 

For five scheduled matches, Stout had a record of 
two wins and three losses. The team won two matches 
from Eau Claire; they lost to Winona, St. Cloud, and 
Mankato. The Blue Devils' record in tournament play 
was a more impressive one. In the bi-state meet played 
at St. Cloud, Minnesota, the Stout golfers placed second. 
Of eight schools represented in the state meet at LaCrosse, 
Stout placed second. 

Leroy Zwick and Bob Eggleston will be returning 
for the 1957 season with senior member Leroy Zwick 
as coach. Many new members are expected to try out 
in hopes of producing another winning team.

The tennis team, coached by Jim Olds, had a suc- 
cessful season last spring by capturing the bi-state title and 
tying for first place in the state championship. Represent- 
ing Stout on the tennis courts were Jim Olds, Tom Miller, 
Tom Tsuji, Vern Christensen, Hank Moerschel, Conrad 
Mlynerek, and Dick Johnson. 

The teams Stout played and beat were Stevens Point, 
Eau Claire, and Winona; Stout lost to St. Cloud. 

Tom Miller won the Wisconsin State College tennis 
singles championship at the finals in La Crosse by virtue 
of his victory over Stauber of Milwaukee. Miller captured 
the title by beating Stauber 6-1, 6-2. Jim Olds reached 
the semifinals before losing. In his battle for third place, 
Olds was defeated by Wethe of La Crosse, 7-5, 2-6, 3-6. 

On their march to the finals, Stout's doubles team, 
Vern Christensen and Tom Tsuji, drew a first round bye 
and then lost to Whitewater and La Crosse. 

A first place finish was worth five points, second 
place, three points, and third place, one point. In team 
scoring, Stout and Whitewater tied for the first place 
with five points each. Stout can well be proud of the 1956 
tennis team and the trophies it won for Stout.

The Phi Sigs and Sig Taus battle for a rebound 


The addition of many new activities and the 
participation of a greater number of students resulted 
in one of the most successful years in the history of 
the intramural sports program. The program was 
directed by the athletic director assisted by members 
of the S Club. 

Of four participating football teams, Lynwood 
Hall won the championship with a record of three 
wins and no losses. Two leagues, the American and 
the National, were formed in basketball. There were 
eight teams in each league, and a total of one hundred 
and fifty students took part. The Globetrotters won 
the National league championship with a record of 
seven wins and no losses, and the F.O.B. I team 
won the American title with a similar record. The 
Globetrotters later captured the bi-league championship 
by defeating the F.O.B. I team. To end the season, 
the American league all -stars edged the National 
league all-stars in an overtime game, 74-70. 

A volley ball league was also formed. The 
F.O.B. team won the league championship, and it 
also won the play-offs, beating the Phi Sigmas. Bill 
Romoser beat John Imray for the badminton singles 
championship, and Dick Cheke and Romoser won 
the doubles title. Other intramural activities included 
ping pong, tennis, bowling, Softball, archery, wrestling, 
angling, indoor relays, swimming, and golf.

Phi Upsilon Omicron, a professional honorary home 
economics fraternity, strives to promote professional zeal 
among its members through service projects, professional 
meetings, special projects, and a variety of social activities. 

The weekly Phi U bulletin board located on first 
floor of Harvey Hall, the Phi U panel presented to the 
freshman personal development class, and the traveling 
textile box sent to all former graduates upon request are 
well known annual projects of the group. Sending clothes 
to an Indian reservation and making stuffed toys for an 
orphanage were two service projects in which the Phi U 
participated this year. 

The Stout State College stickers, small pennants with 
Stout's tower inscribed in the corner, have become familiar 
additions to letters sent by Stout students through the 
various sales Phi U has held during the year. 

Anna Gurusamy, a Stout student from Malaya, was 
the guest speaker at one of the group's professional meetings 
held during the year. An informal dance was the main 
attraction at the joint meeting of Phi U and Epsilon Pi Tau; 
Phi U and Home Economics club held a joint professional 
meeting this spring. The Phi U alumni chapter and the 
active chapter on campus held two joint meetings — 
a Christmas party and a spring get-together. 

On February 10 Phi U celebrated its Founder's day 
at which time the members could be identified by the 
wearing of the traditional yellow rose. Two new groups 
of initiates were also taken in during the fall and spring. 
The Spring tea and the Senior Farewell dinner brought 
another vear to a close for Phi U. 



Previous Boy Scout training and an earnest desire 
to render service to others are the basic requirements for 
membership in Alpha Phi Omega. APO, Eta Kappa 
chapter, is the only service fraternity on the Stout campus. 
The group is approved by the National Council of Boy 
Scouts, yet it is self-governing and self-supporting. 

The basic ideas of Alpha Phi Omega set forth in 
its national constitution are to assemble college men in the 
fellowship of the Scout Oath and Law, to develop friendship, 
and to promote service to humanity. Eta Kappa chapter in 
keeping the pledge betters the Stout campus and student 
life in many ways. One of the group's most notable 
projects is the placement and maintenance of waste cans at 
strategic spots on the campus. Another service project is 
that of ushering and handing out programs at Stout athletic 
functions and convocations. The group also offered a card 
laminating service to students and refilled shop first aid kits 

Since APO members were once Boy Scouts, it seems 
only natural that they find enjoyment helping the Scouts. 
Among the services rendered to the Scouts are judging skiing, 
swimming, track, and other athletic events. Club members 
are also often called upon to help with community and 
national activities such as the March of Dimes and the 
blood bank. 

Although the club is primarily a service organization, 
it does have several social activities. Among these are an 
initiation banquet, a picnic, and bimonthly meetings.

Epsilon Pi 7'au, a national honorary fraternity in the 
field of industrial arts, endeavors to acquaint its members 
with the events which are occurring on the national level 
in the field of industrial arts. The organization, whose national 
headquarters is located at Columbus, Ohio, requires that its 
members and those who would be candidates for member' 
ship meet high standards in order to qualify for admittance. 
An undergraduate or graduate student who has not maintained 
at least a B average is not considered for membership in 
the Stout Theta chapter of Epsilon Pi Tau. Graduate students 
must complete one semester at Stout; transfer students and 
those who enter Stout as freshmen must complete two and 
three semesters of work at Stout respectively before they are 
considered for membership. 

The primary function of this organization is to conduct 
meetings at which persons associated with industrial arts or 
related fields present information pertinent to the needs and 
interests of group members. A joint meeting with the Epsilon 
Pi Tau equivalent in the home economics field, Phi Upsilon 
Omicron, is an annual event. For this occasion an outstanding 
speaker is often invited to address the combined organizations. 
Twice a year, field trips are made to various industrial plants 
in order to observe their operations, or the trip may be made 
to the industrial arts departments of secondary schools to 
examine programs and methods set up to teach industrial 
arts courses.

A faint smell of roses seemed to be present in Harvey 
Hall the week of November 10. This illusion might have 
resulted because members of Sigma Tau Gamma, a national 
social fraternity, were selling tickets to their all-school formal, 
the Rose dance. Queen of the dance was Helen Miller; her 
attendants were Dorothy Gresch and Elizabeth Erpenbach. 
Decorations followed the theme of an outdoor setting and 
included the favors for members' dates, stuffed dogs, which 
were arranged in the Greek letters of the fraternity. 

Autumn found the Sig Taus busy with new pledges 
and Homecoming activities. Swords and helmets were worn 
by the pledges, and the traditional blue and white shields 
were also carried. A banquet was held after the new members 
completed their pledge requirements. Sig Tau alumni were 
guests at a Homecoming "ham and eggs" breakfast; the group 
entered a float in the Homecoming parade. 

At home football games, the members tempted the ap- 
petites of spectators by selling taffy apples and popcorn. A 
"Green Door," later to be discovered as a mirror which 
gave self-portraits of guests, was the theme for an all-school 
mixer sponsored by Sig Taus on November 3 . 

A Christmas party and a pre-prom dinner were two 
social events at which the Sig Taus entertained their dates. 
The fraternity also sponsored a smoker for freshman men.

"Steaming hot coffee and hot chocolate for sale." This 
was the familiar call of members of the Delta Kappa fraternity 
as they began their activities early in the school year selling 
refreshments at the home football games. Following the 
football game on September 15, the "Tracky Drag*' was 
sponsored by the fraternity. The informal all -school dance 
was held in the Stout gym. Music was furnished by the Royal 
Blackhawks, and all in attendance participated in a grand 
march. First prize was awarded to Bene Zander and Jeanine 
Blank for the tackiest outfits. 

Homecoming kept the DK's busy with their annual 
alumni breakfast. Hard work spent on the group's float entry 
was rewarded when the float received honorable mention in 
the "most in keeping with the theme" category. 

New members were initiated into the fraternity twice 
during the year. A new pledge could be easily identified by 
his familiar red fez and sash. In the spring seven members 
were initiated at the Hide-a-Way after a trying week of 
pledge activities. 

The saying, "It is better to give than to receive," was 
in the hearts of the Delta Kappa members when they gave 
two Christmas baskets to needy families in the area. In keep- 
ing with the holiday spirit the group also held a Christmas 

Members were active participants in intramural spopts 
throughout the year. To complete a successful school ^year 
the frat members held their spring dinner dance. .Advisors

Sweetheart dancegoers gather at the punch table 


Phi Sigma Epsilon, Omega chapter, is a national social 
fraternity. The Phi Sigs, as they are commonly called, began 
the school year by selling Stout State ballpoint pens and 
pennants. Early in the fall the Phi Sigs and the Tri Sigmas 
sponsored a Sweetheart dance; decorations centered around a 
huge heart suspended from a false ceiling. 

The Phi Sigs "giant step" this year was the successful 
initiation of a co-op house. Such a venture provided eco- 
nomical living, demanded cooperative attitudes, and instilled 
a closer fellowship among its twenty occupants. The fraternity 
house was open to friends and alumni during the busy Home- 
coming weekend, and a reunion dinner for members and 
alumni was held at the Colonial Pines. The group was also 
pleased to have its Homecoming float judged "most in 
keeping with the theme." 

The fraternity was honored when a national officer 
presented it with an efficiency trophy that is annually 
awarded to the chapter which has been most competently 

The Phi Sigs sponsored a booth at the S Club carnival 
and entered the Winter carnival snow carving contest. They 
also participated in the hockey grudge game with the F.O.B.'s. 
The group held its dinner dance in mid-May at the Marion 
Hotel. The final activity of the year was a spring picnic, 
better known as the "Green-up," held to honor senior mem- 
bers. Phi Sigma Epsilon's faculty advisors are Mr. Siefert 
and Mr. Soderberg. 


The semester beginning on September 6, 1956, 
marked the entrance of a new organization to the social 
make-up of Stout State College. Newly organized Chi 
Lambda is a local social fraternity. 

The members of Chi Lambda hope that unity of 
action through formal organization will create a strong bond 
of brotherhood between members, foster social competence 
of members, nurture high moral and ethical values, and 
contribute to the wholesome growth of the extra-curricular 
activities of the campus. One of the group's first activities 
was the entering of a float in the homecoming parade. 
The float was entitled, "Chi Lambda Calculates the Odds." 
Members of the fraternity also participated in many 
intramural activities during the year. 

Dinner meetings were held once a month. A different 
speaker was invited each month, and some type of enter- 
tainment was also provided. PI edge master Bob Olstrom 
had many activities planned for the new pledges who 
came into Chi Lambda in December. The most important 
event on the social calendar was the dinner dance which 
was held May 1 1 . The members presented their dates 
with favors and danced to the music of the George King 

Dr. Kitz is advisor for the group. Dr. Nitz, the 
officers, and the members worked hard to pull the organization 
through its first year's growing pains. Regardless of the time 
consumed or the energy spent, the members agreed that 
their results were well worth the effort.

Winning first prize on floats in both the Dunn County 
Dairy Day parade and the Stout Homecoming parade began 
a year of active participation in many school activities for 
members of Phi Omega Beta. Soon after Homecoming the 
F. O. B. members presented Duffy's Tavern, one of the 
most unique dances of the school year. Music provided 
by the "Biggest Little Band" added much to the informal 

The F. O. B. Milk Bar presented in the spring was 
one of the orginal teas of the year; cookies and milk 
were served to all in attendance. Another event sponsored 
by the group was the F. O. B. Stunt Night. This annual 
event attracted many of the campus organizations, and there 
was keen competition for prizes. 

During the year fraternity members took an active 
part in intramural sports including basketball, football, 
fowling, volleyball, and softball. The group displayed 
its aim of promoting sportsmanship in the grudge game 
played against the Phi Sigs. The group's interest in 
athletics is further evidenced in their awarding of a Sioo 
scholarship to a worthy freshman athlete. Recipient of this 
year's award was Bob Mitchell. 

The F. O. B.'s took in two new groups of pledges 
this year — one in the fall and one in the spring. After 
performing varied activities during Hell Week, the pledges 
became full-fledged fraternity members. The Phi Omega 
Beta fraternity, known as the F. O. B., was the first social 
organization for men on the Stout campus. The fraternity was 
organized to promote scholastic ability, to advocate sports- 
manship, and to provide for the welfare of its members 
and the students on campus. Dr. Rudiger and Dr. Ray 
serve as the group's advisors.

Students majoring in dietetics or institutional manage- 
ment are eligible for membership in the Stout State College 
Dietetic club. The club is a professional organization for 
all students majoring in either of these fields after they 
have ^ completed three semesters of study. Miss Killian, 
Stout's food service director, is the advisor of the club. 

Members participated in many professional and social 
activities during the 1956-57 school year. Vocation-wise, 
the club took tours to food laboratories, to outstanding 
hotels, and to the Pillsbury laboratories. Hospitals in 
Menomonle and Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and the Anker 
Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota, were also visited by 
the club. 

Representatives of the Dietetic club attended the 
National Dietetic Convention in Milwaukee in October. 
The National Restaurant Association Convention held in 
Chicago, Illinois, in the spring also had Stout delegates in 

Guest dieticians and other noted personalities gave 
informative lectures at meetings throughout the year. During 
the year, chicken and steak fries were held at Lake Pepin 
and Riverside Park. 

Dietetic club members were busy the first two weeks 
of December with their annual fruit cake sale. The sale 
not only promoted the profession, but it also benefited the 
members by helping them practice some quantity cookery. 

As a climax to the year's activities and as a tribute to 
the graduating seniors, the club treated its senior members 
to a farewell dinner. A medical dictionary was presented to 
the outstanding senior in appreciation of her professional zeal.

Ski club is composed of many heterogeneous types of 
skiers varying from the uncoordinated beginner to the 
arrogant high jumper. Patience, courage, the will to learn, 
and a liking for the cold winter weather are the only 
prerequisites for securing membership in the club. 

Instructions were given to interested students, either 
at the club meetings or in actual practice teachings on the 
ski slopes. At the indoor meetings the students were taught 
many of the "dry-land" techniques of skiing which included 
care of skis and other ski equipment. Discussions were also 
held on questions which occurred and on other topics 
pertaining to skiing. 

The more qualified and experienced skiers of the 
organization acted as the ski patrols at the various slopes. 
Their job was to lend asistance to skiers in any possible way- 
including the administration of first aid if it were needed. 

The most frequently visited slopes were Deepwood. 
Lockehaven, and Telemark. Rides were furnished for the 
club members; they usually left quite early in the morning 
and remained at their destination for the entire day. The 
first skiing attempt usually was not too eventful, but after 
a few trial and error runs even the beginner became 
surprisingly adept and skillful. Enthusiasm was very high 
among the students from the time they arrived until the 
time they departed. After or between the skiing escapades 
everyone was welcome to warm coffee and other energy- 
providing foods. Skiers also had a chance to relax, talk to 
old friends, make new acquaintenances, and discuss the 
events of the day before their departure back to Stout.

Affiliated with the National Rifle Association, the 
Stout Rifle Club has as its members those students who 
are interested in small bore rifles, pistols, and larger caliber 
firearms. The club was founded in 1937. During World 
War II it became inactive, but in 1 947 the group reorganized. 
Today, the aim of the organization remains unchanged: 
to provide instruction in the use and care of guns, to teach 
the safety of gun handling, to give training in a sport 
which provides recreation, and to provide sportsmanlike 

The club makes use of both indoor and outdoor 
shooting ranges. Mr. Klatt, the club's advisor, assisted the 
novice and the veteran marksmen in the safe use of weapons. 
Club teams were set up on the basis of the participants' 
average scores in three positions — prone, sitting, and 
standing. National awards are given annually to the most 
accurate rifle and pistol marksmen. Members of the Stout 
club also took part in many postal matches which were 
held with other colleges and universities in Wisconsin and 
surrounding states. 

Besides becoming more informed and accurate in the 
use and care of firearms, club members also took part in 
several college activities. Blue and white decals with the 
Stout State College seal are sold annually as a money-making 
project. The group also entered a float in the Homecoming 
parade and sponsored a booth at the S Club carnival.

The Inter- Varsity Christian Fellowship, an international 
organization which seeks to deepen the spiritual life of 
college students, is represented on the campus by the Stout 
Christian Fellowship. This organization holds that the 
student who is well established on a firm Christian foundation 
will be able to interpret and to use his accumulated 
knowledge more fully. 

In seeking to fulfill its goal, this group conducts 
informal meetings in which interest is centered upon a sincere 
study and discussion of the Bible. Omitted from these 
discussions is any reference to specific religious doctrines. 
Several exchange meetings are held with the Eau Claire 
chapter during the year. If an outside speaker is to be on 
the program or if a film is to be shown, the group holds 
an open meeting so that all interested students may attend. 
The S. C. F. regards its activities as being supplementary 
to regular church attendance on the part of its members. 

This organization takes cognizance of the need for 
each student to lead a well balanced college life. Therefore, 
it stresses the social aspects of campus living as well as the 
spiritual and intellectual development of its members. 
During the course of the year several parties are planned for 
by the S. C. F., and one of the four meetings which are 
held each month is set aside to be used as a social 
evening. Advisor to the Stout Christian Fellowship

Metals Guild members "shackle Superior to make

Leo VandcrKamp demonstrates the use of metals 


Students majoring in the metals field now have a profes- 
sional organization all their own. It is intended to enhance 
the members' knowledge of new techniques, products, and 
advances in the metal working field and to further develop 
skills in the use of metal working tools, machines, and 
products. The Metals Guild unites a group of men with 
similar interests into a formal organization and increases 
professional efficiency and social competence of all members. 
The organization is advised by Dr. Wiehe, Mr. Kufahl, 
Mr. Rawson, and Mr. Halfin. 

Semi-monthly meetings give members valuable 
information in the form of films, speakers, and individual 
reports by members. The organization rendered service to 
all industrial education students enrolled in metals courses 
by making cadmium plating available for student projects. 

The first project undertaken by the Metals Guild 
was the sale of small blue Stout bells. These bells were 
used to further school spirit at athletic events. The group 
took a trip to the Twin Cities during second semester 
touring Dun woody Institute, the Electric Steel Casting 
Company, and Metallurgical, Inc. Highlight on the social 
calendar was a spring picnic. 

An outstanding achievement award was presented 
to the student who made the most valuable contribution 
to the machine shop department. The Metals Guild promises 
to be a leader in educational activties on campus in years to 
come. It may pave the way for the development of many 
similar organizations.

One hundred and thirty-eight women received a light 
for their candles from the Betty lamp on September 24. 
This impressive candlelight ceremony marked the initiation 
of the women into Home Economics club and brought 
total club membership to 390. 

Meetings this year were centered around the theme, 
"Home Economists Make News/' Four members — Delia 
Medin, Fern Mathey, Joan Wonoski, and Dorothy Gresch 
— presented highlights of their summer employment at the 
October meeting. In November Shirley Johnson presented 
a program of slides taken on her trip through^ ten European 
countries. "How thin do want them sliced?" and "Where 
do we store them?" were just two of the questions th?t 
came up as club members prepared for their annual Christmas 
cookie sale. December was also filled with the excitement 
of the Christmas tea. Dean Kirk shared experiences of her 
round-the-world tour at the club's February meeting. 

Even though freshmen are usually thought of as 
inexperienced in school activities, they proved their abilitv 
when they presented the Green tea in March. In connection 
with the If. W. C A. Mother-Daughter banquet, the Home 
Economics club also sponsored a new activity, a talent show. 
A representative from Marshall Field's helped carry out 
the year's theme by discussing home economics careers 
at a spring meeting. In April Barbara Ness spoke on her 
IFYE trip to Finland, and a report on the Wisconsin Home 
Economics Association convention was given. As in past 
years the Senior breakfast concluded the year's activities.

During the preceding year such sports as volleyball, 
badminton, basketball, bowling, and aerial tennis dart were 
enjoyed by Stout coeds organized to develop a spirit of 
sportsmanship. The Women's Recreation Association is 
a student-led organization which sponsors various intramural 
sports and social activities throughout the year. 

The group which is primarily responsible for the 
success of W. R. A. is the officers who are elected by the 
members and the sports managers in charge of the various 
sports who are appointed by the board of directors. These 
girls are unable to do the work all alone; they depend on 
other members for assistance. 

The W. R. A. Board of Directors and its advisor, 
Miss Erdlitz, meet on the first Monday of even' month; 
a general meeting for all W. R. A. members is held on 
the second Monday of the month. 

Each woman is required to sign up for one of the 
W. R. A. social or money-making projects, and from each 
of these groups a chairman is chosen. Social activities 
sponsored by the group this year included a sports spree, 
Christmas party, treasure hunt, gymjam, tea, and picnic. 
Among this year's money-making projects were selling hot 
dogs and barbecues at all home football games, selling 
balloons with the Stout seal on them during Homecoming 
weekend, selling stuffed college pets, and sponsoring 
a booth at the S Club carnival.

W. R. A. 

Each woman in the club earns accumulative organized 
and unorganized points which are the basis for awarding 
emblems, letters, and pins at the end of the year on Awards 
day. Organized points may be earned by participating in 
three intramural games of one sport, acting as sports manager 
or assistant, or serving as the chairman of a money-making 
project. Unorganized points are earned mainly through 
partaking in outside activities such as hiking, bowling, 
skiing, or swimming. Organized points may be changed to 
unorganized points upon request from individual member.. 

A member does not have to sign up for every intramural 
sport conducted; she may choose the sports she is especially 
interested in. Sports managers appointed by the board of 
directors make plans for playing a particular sport. All 
members interested in that sport sign up in groups and are 
organized to play as teams. From these groups captains 
are chosen. The sports manager draws up a schedule of 
the teams and the dates of contests from this listing. Through 
a process of elimination a championship team from each 
W. R. A. sport is selected. 

This year W. R, A. conducted an all-school basketball 
tournament composed of any campus group that wished to 
have a team represented. After a round-robin tournament, 
the final play-offs were held between the winning men's 
team and the winning women's team.

Freshman women felt a little more at home at Stout 
after the Big-Little Sister tea. Held during orientation week 
and sponsored by the Young Women's Christian Association, 
the tea enabled freshmen to meet and mix with fellow 
freshmen and upperclassmen. Each freshman girl was 
assigned a "big sister" upon enrolling in Stout. This "big 
sister" was an upperclassman who volunteered for the 
position and who tried to make the girl a part of Stout 
before she ever arrived on campus by corresponding with 
her during the summer. 

The Y. W. C. A. sponsored a candy sale last fall. 
Another of the group's money -making projects was Hobo 
day on which the girls did odd jobs for people in 
Menomonie. The beautifully decorated Christmas tree 
adorning the lower corridor of Harvey Hall was also work 
of the group. Instead of exchanging gifts among themselves 
at Christmas, each member contributed to a fund which 
was used for a CARE package. Another social service 
project of the club was a clothing drive for needy people 
in foreign countries. Last year's clothing package went to 

Toward the end of January the Y. W. C. A. held the 
Big-Little Sister reunion. The tea gave students a few 
moments to visit with old friends and a chance to meet new 
ones. Spring found the "Y" busy with plans for its 
Mother-Daughter banquet. One of the highlights of the 
year, this all-school affair boasts effective decorations, good 
food, and fun for all.

Splash! Into the water dove another synchro- 
nized swimmer as one of the newest clubs on the 
Stout campus began another meeting. Anyone- 
interested in swimming for enjoyment is eligible to 
become a member of the Synchronized Swimmers. 
At the regular Tuesday evening meetings techniques 
in uniform rhythmic swimming to music were 
practiced on land as well as in the pool. 

To open the school year the group held 
a "Pool Potpourri" to introduce its activities to all 
interested students. A meeting was later held to 
discuss the purposes, membership requirements, and 
general rules of the club. 




Highlight of the year was the water show, 
"Anchors Away," presented on April 13 and 14. 
The main theme of the show was that of three 
sailors visiting various foreign countries. Each 
member taking part in the presentation wore 
a costume which he made himself. A diving 
exhibition was presented at the intermission by 
several club members. Excellent programming, 
lighting, and staging helped to make the show 
a success. 

To end the school year the Synchronized 
Swimmers entertained the student body during the 
intermission of a Wednesday night dance with "The 
Mock Wedding of H z and O." Faculty advisor 
for the group is Mrs. Vanek.

The Stout Student Association is by far vhs 
largest and most powerful organization on the 
campus. When a student enrolls at Stout he 
automatically becomes an S.S.A. member. Among 
the many responsibilities of the S.S.A. are taking 
charge of all school elections and tabulation % 
planning convocations, and distributing Stout 
student identification cards. 

One of the goals of the S.S.A. is to keep 
the campus from becoming socially "dead." The 
organization sponsors mixers when there are no 
other social events on the agenda. The biggest 
project of the group is sponsoring the annual 
Winter carnival. 

Some of the group's other activities include a 
men's smoker, all-student mixers, and the Christmas 
dance. Spring and fall picnic sponsorships are 
shared in cooperation with the classes. The S.S.A. 
makes available a public address system for use at 
school functions. 

The governing board consisting of four 
student-elected officers, class and dormitory repre- 
sentatives, and faculty advisors manages the S.S.A. 
The officers hold regular office hours for students 
who wish to discuss matters with them. The group 
also holds meetings which are open to all interested 
persons every two weeks. 

S.S.A. officers make plans for one of the many 
college activities under S.S.A. Jurisdiction

Familiar cry at basketball games — "Get your Cheerios here!" 
S Club members make another sale at their concession stand 


Backing sports at Stout in every possible way is the 
major aim of the S Club. This club is the official 
organization on campus for men who have won letters by 
competing in major intercollegiate athletics. 

This year the S Club worked especially hard to 
achieve its goal of promoting athletics at Stout. The first 
project of the club was the publication of the football 
programs which were twice as large this year as those in 
former years. The S Club assisted in directing the 
intramural athletic program; the club also provided 
programs and concessions at basketball games. 

The club voted to have Dad's day, a special eveni 
intended to honor the dads of the football players, every 
two years instead of every year. Many organizations 
participated in the annual S Club carnival by sponsoring 
booths, side shows, and concession stands. One of the 
club's new activities was the Fish dinner held this spring. 
The proceeds of the dinner were used to sponsor an 
athletic scholarship. Another attempt at encouraging 
athletics at Stout was the sending of letters to male alumni 
motivating them to urge high school athletes to continue 
their education at Stout. 

The Athletics Awards day convocation was held this 
spring to honor varsity and intramural athletes. Special 
awards were given to each member of the S Club for the 
sen-ice he rendered in representing Stout on the athletic 
field; a trophy was presented to the outstanding freshman 
athlete of the year. 

The final activity of the S Club was a white elephant 
sale at the all-school farewell picnic.

Manual Arts Players chapter of Alpha Psi 
Omega was established to develop an appreciation 
and interpretation of drama, to provide a chance to 
gain skill in staging dramatic productions, and to 
contribute to the cultural life of the college. Mem- 
bership is obtained by earning a certain number of 
points; being an understudy requires fifty points, 
and full membership requires one hundred points. 

The 1956 school year contained a busy 
schedule for M. A. P. members and understudies. 
One of the larger projects of the year was the 
continued expansion of the stage facilities for the 
dramatics department. This year a general equip- 
ment room was redesigned and refinished. 


Alpha Psi Omega presented two major stage 
productions, one in the fall and one in the spring. 
Dr. Lengfeld advised the group. Picnics, parties, 
a scavenger hunt, initiation ceremonies, banquets, 
a Christmas party, and a trip to Minneapolis to a 
major traveling stage production highlighted the 
M. A. P.'s social activities. 

A booklet describing the M. A. P. framework 
was revised and distributed to the freshman students 
to acquaint them with the organization. Educational 
programs and one-act plays were presented before 
business meetings to broaden members' dramatics 
knowledge and appreciation.

Developed primarily to foster the growth of hobby 
skills among its members, the Arts and Crafts club has had 
an eventful year. One of the group's first activities, a fund 
raising project, was that of selling Homecoming buttons. 

During the year members made use of many types of 
materials, ranging from leather and wood to metal and the 
newest plastics. Members worked on their projects diligently 
and completed many objects which were useful as well 
as attractive. A number of lectures and movies directly related 
to such hobby and craft interests were shown at group meet- 
ings. At the last meeting in May each member was given 
an opportunity to display examples of his fine workmanship. 

As in previous years, one of the major projects of 
the Arts and Crafts club this year was its annual card 
party. A large crowd was on hand and played almost 
every variety of card game imaginable. Prizes offered at 
the party were several of the articles made by club members. 

As part of their year's activities, the club initiated new 
members. In the spring new officers were elected; the club 
is advised by Mr. Kranzusch. The Arts and Crafts club 
contributes a great deal to the development of students' 
extra-curricular activities and the formation of hobbies which 
will be useful in the future.

When other organizations have pledging, the men 
appear with their traditional crests and costumes. The Stout 
Typographical Society has original outfits for its new members 
too. Fellow students can easily identify new S.T.S. mem- 
bers by their printed paper caps and their shop aprons. Newly 
initiated members enter as apprentices. By doing research, 
undertaking technical study, and passing proficiency examina- 
tions one may advance to the positions of journeyman and 
master. A key symbolic of the organization is made of a 
different metal for each degree — bronze for the apprentice, 
silver for the journeyman, and gold for the master printer. 

Printed materal is obtained by clubs, societies, and other 
organizations on campus through the Typographical Society. 
Personalized stationery is also sold to Stout students. 

A program on European an and architecture by Frank 
Leslie was sponsored by S.T.S. for students and faculty 
members. Mr. Leslie, president of the John Leslie Paper 
Company in Minneapolis, used colored slides in his talk and 
displayed a collection of rare books. During Printing Educa- 
tion Week, an open house was held offering a tour of the 
printing department. Many displays were set up and numerous 
samples and souvenirs were given to the visitors. Refresh- 
ments were served following the tour. 

In the spring the members enjoyed a field trip to the 
Twin Cities where they visited various industries in the 
printing field. From these tours firsthand information of 
industrial operations was gained. The "Wazygoose," the 
printer's annual picnic, brought the year's activities to a close.

This year marked the first time in the Radio club's 
history that it had a female member. The Radio club 
strives to develop an interest in radio in all students — 
female as well as male — and it hopes that this will serve 
as an incentive to other interested women. 

Weekly meetings dealt with a variety of radio-wise 
activities. Club members worked hard trying to complete 
requirements for their licenses. The first part of the year 
was spent almost entirely learning and practicing Morse 
code. The goal which prompted this intensive practice 
was to become efficient enough to receive five words per 
minute and consequently achieve a novice license enabling 
the operator to send code on the air within certain 
limitations. From the novice license the amateur radio 
operator advanced to thirteen words a minute and his 
general license. 

During second semester the club practiced code, and 
also carried on group discussions concerning radio 
techniques, problems, and situations. Every week a 
member prepared a topic; this member then conducted 
the group experiment, lecture, or question period at the 
club's meeting. 

The club entered the Homecoming festivities with 
-est. Christmas found the club enjoying the festive spirit 
at Mr. Reuhl's home. A short meeting was held, club 
members participated in a game of darts, and the evening 
was ended with refreshments.

The Inter-Religious Council coordinates all religious 
groups, both on-campus and off-campus, which serve the 
Stout students' religious needs. The Council's first activity 
was the preparation and distribution of a bulletin, "Locate 
Your Church," during orientation week. This bulletin was 
intended to familiarize new students with Stout's religious 

Several speakers were invited during the year to discuss 
the effect of religion on a campus student and the religions 
of the world. A number of panel discussions was also pre- 
sented, and the presidents of the various religious groups 
represented on the Council reported on the activities of their 
respective groups during the year. The selected representatives 
of each participating organization held monthly supper meet- 
ings to discuss campus religious problems. 

Further means by which the Council encouraged the 
students' religious growth were recommending policies to 
Stout for stimulation of students' religious development and 
administering religious activities approved by the Council and 
the college. An understanding was promoted among clergy- 
men, faculty members, students, and parents of the relation- 
ship that should exist between higher education and religion 
in a democratic society. The Inter- Religious Council also 
made arrangements for a guest speaker at the student convo- 
cation during Brotherhood Week. 

These activities create an atmosphere in which those 
who desire to participate in religious affairs may do so as 
conveniently as possible throughout their college days. 



To achieve close and lasting ties among Stout's four 
social sororities, Panhellenic Council has carried on many 
activities throughout the year. One of the group's first activi- 
ties was a fall rushing party acquainting eligible girls with 
campus sororities. A second rushing parry for freshmen and 
transfer students was held in the spring. 

"An Old-Fashioned Christmas" was the theme selected 
for the annual Intersorority Christmas formal. Snowdrifts and 
pine trees, skaters and dancers transported the couples to a 
romantic old-fashioned Christmas. Many colored lights were 
reflected by a ceiling of tiny mirrors as soft music flowed from 
George Soderb erg's orchestra. 

Gay stockings of every color and design were seen at 
the Panhellenic Sock Hop. This annual all-school dance held 
in the spring was, as you might expect, very informal. 

Two members from each sorority, the president and 
one member elected as a representative for two years, and 
the sorority* advisors comprise Panhellenic Council. The 
offices of president and secretary-treasurer rotate among the 
sororities from year to year. 

One of Panhellenic's biggest projects this year was the 
revision of rushing rules and regulations and the Panhellenic 
Constitution. Recommendations from the National Pan- 
hellenic Council were incorporated and modified to meet 
the specific needs of Stout's sororities. The Panhellenic 
Council has tried throughout the year to promote close co- 
operation among them.

"Alice in P. A. Land," the traditional theme of the 
rushing party held in October, began an active year for 
members of Pallas Athene sorority. The rushing party was 
followed by the pledging of sixteen new members. Sorority 
members took an active part in Homecoming with their 
float entry and an alumni dinner. The sorority was especially 
honored when one of its members, Betty Havlik, was selected 
to reign as Homecoming queen. 

In October the sorority went to Minneapolis to see 
a stage play, "The Lark." On November 29 the pledges 
were formally initiated after going through pledge week 
and presenting the traditional Sardine party. At Christmas 
time the girls prepared boxes of food, clothing, and toys for 
several local needy families as a community sendee project. 
Among the sorority's money-making activities were a Christ- 
mas boutique bag sale and an Easter sale. 

Pallas Athene sponsored the Snow Ball in January as 
part of the Winter carnival. Another important activity of 
the group was the May Day tea which was centered around 
the traditional maypole. On February 14 the members 
were seen wearing corsages of white carnations and a red 
rose in observance of Founder's day. To bring the year's 
activities to a close, Pallas Athene held its annual dinner 
dance at the Marion Hotel.

Fellows fashionably attired in Bermuda shorts were 
admitted free at one of this year's most unusual dances, the 
"Bermuda Blast." The dance was Alpha Sigma Alpha's 
first project this year. In the fall, eleven pledges were 
accepted into the sorority following a rushing party. 
"Stranger in Paradise." Homecoming found members busily 
working on their float which received honorable mention in 
the parade. In November Helen Miller brought further 
honors to her sorority when she reigned as the Rose of 
Sigma Tau Gamma. 

Members could easily be identified when they wore 
yellow and white chrysanthemums on November 15 in 
observance of the 55th anniversary of their founding. Other 
times during the year, one could identify the Alpha Sigs by 
their white blazer jackets with the sorority crest embroidered 
on the pocket. 

Throughout the year members were busy with such 
activities as the Intersorority formal and the Winter carnival. 
In February the campus took on an air of "Dogpatcn 
Village," and the girls had a decided advantage on the 
dating situation. Alpha Sigma, sponsor of Sadie Hawkir>> 
week, highlighted the activities with a dance. A Valentine 
tea and a candy sale also kept the members active. 

Like all good things, a successful year had to come 
to a close. Alpha Sigma Alpha concluded its activities with 
a dinner dance at the Countrv Club.

Last fall Hyperian sorority members returned to the 
Stout campus ready to launch another eventful year. After 
the fall rushing party, "Circus," 13 girls spent four weeks 
performing pledge duties. Pledging was climaxed by the 
presentation of a skit at a school mixer. Hyperians participated 
in many of Stout's activities. For Homecoming the girls pre- 
pared "7th Heaven" as their float entry and planned a break- 
fast in honor of the returning Hyperian alumni. Members 
entered a skit for F.O.B. Skit night; they participated in 
the Winter carnival snow carving contest and the tug of 
war contest. 

As one of their projects, the Hyperians sent Christmas 
greetings to the mentally retarded children at the Northern 
Colony with gifts of stuffed animals. A candy sale and the 
sale of the Hyperian quilt served as money making projects. 

A Valentine's Day dinner was enjoyed by both members 
and spring pledges. In March the girls donned checked 
aprons and served root beer, ginger ale, pretzels, and potato 
chips to the student body at the annual "Ye Olde Heidelberg" 
tea. On March 19, the group observed its Founder's day by 
wearing the sorority flower and attending a Founder's day 
dinner. Eta Sigma Omega sorority, more commonly known 
as Hyperian sorority, was organized on the Stout Institute 
campus in 1923. Its purposes are to encourage and further 
scholarship, to do social service, and to further social life 
for its members. 

A mother-daughter tea, dinner dance, and senior fare- 
well dinner climaxed the year's activities for the group.

Beta Pi chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma is a national 
sorority and a member of the National Panhellenic Confer- 
ence. After the annual rushing party was held in October 
with a prison atmosphere predominating, ten new pledges 
were initiated. 

The Sweetheart dance sponsored by the Phi Sigma 
Epsilon fraternity and Sigma Sigma Sigma was one of the 
most successful events sponsored by the group. The award- 
ing of "Lover," a stuffed dog, was made at the dance. 

October was an especially busy month for the sorority. 
One of the busiest but most rewarding events was Home- 
coming during which the Tri Sigmas won first prize for 
their "most beautiful" float entry. Another important Home- 
coming event was the alumni breakfast. The Halloween tea 
was another fall event sponsored by the sorority. 

With December came the excitement of the Inter- 
sorority ball; this year the members were in charge of general 
arrangements for the big event. The girls worked hard 
making articles for the annual Christmas sale. Again this 
Christmas the sorority helped a needy Menomonie family 
have a happier holiday by giving them a package of food, 
clothing, and toys. 

White dresses and purple violets were worn by sorority 
members in April in observance of Founder's day. For senior 
members the dinner dance held late in May was one of their 
last sorority social events before becoming alumni of Sigma 
Sigma Sigma. The graduating seniors were also entertained 
at a senior farewell dinner.

The eyes and ears of Stout State College are known as 
The Stoutonia. This weekly publication of the 
college is produced on the campus entirely by the Stout 

Behind the scenes in producing a school newspaper 
such as The Stoutonia are staff members working 
together to meet the deadline every Friday morning. Pro- 
duction of the paper begins each Monday with the taking 
of a "newscast" and giving out of the assignments. Staff 
reporters immediately begin going after their stories and 
soon are writing them up. On Tuesday and Wednesday 
other staff members busily begin copyreading, typing, and 
proofreading articles. On Thursday morning a complete 
dummy of the paper is drawn up by the editor, Jermaine 
Folkman, Clever captions and headlines for pictures and 
stories are also devised and placed on the dummy. Advertise- 
rncnts are fitted into the paper; jokes and cartoons are 
inserted to add to the reader's enjoyment. 

Lights are often seen shining through the windows of 
Bowman Hall Thursday evening as the production staff is 
kept busy late into the night running off the bundles of 
papers to meet the deadline. On Friday morning the work 
of the circulation staff begins. Copies of the paper are 
prepared for mailing to all active alumni. Newspapers for 
stuuents are then taken to campus points of distribution. 
Thirty newspapers from each week's circulation are kept in 
The Stoutonia file.

At certain times throughout the year, special issues of 
The Stoutonia are released. Features of the year 
are the Homecoming, Thanksgiving, and Christmas issues 
when an extra page is inserted. Additional papers for other 
occasions such as Mother's day and April Fool's day are 
occasionally published. 

The Stoutonia is financed by the S. S. A. 
The ads which supplement the paper's income are sold 
by the production manager. Most of them are purchased 
by local establishments with the exception of a few ads 
purchased by national advertisers. The pictures for The 
Stoutonia are taken and prepared for publication by 
4 students at Stout, and the cuts of the pictures are made by 
a commercial firm. The paper presents students with valuable 
knowledge and experience in writing, printing, reporting, 
and other skills included in the publication of a newspaper. 

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" has 
been taken to heart by The Stoutonia staff members. 
Throughout the school year birthday parties and social 
get-togethers were often held after the paper had been "run 
off" on Thursday nights. Big social event of the year was 
a banquet for the entire staff held in May. The group 
also took a trip to the Cities on April 16. 

To end the 1956-57 school year the retiring editor 
and an outstanding member of the staff each received an 
award for exceptional service rendered to the paper. Advisor 
of The Stoutonia is Mr. Whydotski.

Kay Ritzman discuss copy for the '57 TOWER 

A familiar sight at school activities, Jim Daines and 
his camera 

As the school year comes to a close, another Toiler has 
been presented to the student body. This book remains with 
you from year to year and always brings back memories of 
life on the Stout campus. Whether they be memories of friends, 
faculty members, classes, organizations, or activities, all can be 
found in the pages of The Toiler. 

There is more work involved in putting out The Tower 
than most people realize. What goes on behind the scenes 
involves a bustle of activity. During the summer months, the 
"dummy" copy was constructed under the direction of the 
production manager.

The dummy is given a thorough check by Kay Riraman, Dr. Barnard, 
Carl Smith,' and Dr. Adams 

Several nights were set aside for taking pictures of 
classes and organizations, while student photographers were 
present at nearly every campus activity to get informal shots. 
Soon after the beginning of the school term, the literary editor 
assigned writers the task of composing the stories which were 
to accompany these pictures. Other writers used their originality 
to think up captions that identify all pictures. Typists were 
soon kept quite busy preparing copy for the printer. 

Through the combined efforts of the entire staff, the 
projected 1957 Tower met the deadline dates, and the 
completed Tower reached you in finished form. 





Skip Hansen and Pat Soldner look over proofs for 
the book 


The coming of films, radio, and television has reduced 
the professional stage to a small, specialized, and extremely 
risky enterprise. Today the bulk of the American theater is 
being kept alive by college, high school, and community 
groups. Manual Arts Players has provided audiences with 
hours of enjoyment. 

Often an audience views a play as something which 
took only a little time to prepare. Actually the plav begins 
months before opening night with the director selecting the 
appropriate play, a talented cast of actors, and a production 
staff. Immediately after selection, the actors concentrate on 
memorizing lines and creating the fictitious characters thev 
will protray. At the same time the production staff begins 
planning details of scenery, lighting, sound effects, properties, 
and make-up. While the technical aspects progress, the 
publicity commttee develops methods of advertising the play. 
As opening night draws nearer, the actors and the production 
staff spend long hours working for professional polish. 

Curtain time finally arrives, and the play is presented to 
the audience. The production staff, the director, and the cast 
have spent many hours of preparation in presenting two and 
one-half hours of entertainment for the audience. 

Actor, director, make-up artist, curtain puller— each 
has contributed his part to the success of the play. Curtain 
call means the end of another play for the dramatic organiza- 
tion, and at the same time it means the beginning of a future 
production. Students working on the production have gained 
experience which will someday prove invaluable.

Returning members of Stout's Symphonic Singers were 
greeted last fall by a new director, Dr. Edfield Odegard. 
The Symphonic Singers is a combined instrumental and 
vocal group of students who have a keen interest in music. 
Members contributed much hard work at weekly evening 
meetings, but they gained a feeling of satisfaction and made 
many friendships. 

The strains of music often drifted through the corridors 
of Harvey Hall as the energetic group prepared for the 
Christmas concert which was presented both at a student 
convocation and in the evening. The climax of the 
concert presented in conjunction with the band and the 
choir was the Symphonic Singers presentation of "The 
Closing Doxology."

The final appearance of the group this year was at 
the spring concert presented on April 9. 

Since an extended tour to several western states is 
being planned for next year, the group decided to forgo 
plans for a tour this season. The majority of their work and 
interest was directed to preparations for next year's tour. 

To both members of the organization and to others in 
and out of school the Symphonic Singers offer a means of 
enjoyment and enrichment. The group's concerts contained 
a wide variety of selections, as the group aimed to include 
in each program the favorite type of music of each person 
in the audience.

Barb Harms leads the Stout band in the spirited strains 
of a march 

During the past year, the Stout State College band 
continued to fulfill its important role in the extra-curricular 
program at Stout. The director, Dr. Odegard, has divided 
the band into three main parts: marching band, concert 
band, and pep band. 

Marching band performed at all Stout's home football 
games, putting on a half-time routine. The group also 
participated in many parades, among them the Menomonie 
High school Homecoming parade, Stout's Homecoming 
parade, and the Dairy Day parade. Concert band was 
composed of the combined bands. At Christmas time, it 
presented a concert jointly with the choir and the Symphonic 
singers. The group's spring program included a concert 
and commencement appearance. The pep band, composed 
of thirty -five concert band members, aided in creating 
school spirit at home basketball games with novelty 
numbers, marches, and fanfares.

The band acquired several pieces of new equipment 
this year. New equipment, the department boasts, includes 
a Leblanc alto clarinet and a bass clarinet, three snare 
drums, two Scotch bass drums, two French horns, one 
baritone, and traps for the percussion section such as maracas, 
triangles, claves, and guiro. Several instruments have also 
been repaired. 

Storage facilities for uniforms and instruments were 
provided by remodeling a storeroom to the west of the 
music office. Plans are also underway for remodeling the 
area across the corridor from these rooms to provide five 
practice rooms for all music students. 

The band offered a wonderful opportunity for students 
to enjoy themselves and find fellowship with other music 
lovers. The band also provided entertainment for the 
entire student body and contributed much to the students' 
pride in their college. 

The pep band adds spirit to basketball games with 
rendition of "Green Door"
